Halloween Cupcakes

Halloween Party Cupcakes

Halloween can be so much fun and so can all the great ideas for creating some Fun Cupcakes for the party. I am a big fan of cupcakes vs. having a cake at any party. Being a party planner I have learned that serving cupcakes at the party not only makes it easier on the parents, but also keeps the kids happy as well.

Parents do not have to worry about cutting the cake and the kids do not have to fight over what piece they get. All the cupcakes are the same size and each will have a fun design that the kids will be proud to eat. So it is a win win every time.


Creating your Halloween Cupcake

There are so many great ideas for creating a Halloween Cupcake and it can be so much fun. It is almost foolproof, you can make your cupcakes look like Monsters, Ghosts, Eyeballs, Spiders, Witch Hats etc.. The list goes on and on. It really makes this holiday and baking limitless to the imagination.

A Good way to get some inspiration is to search through Google Images - just type in "Halloween Cupcakes" and look at some of the wonderful photos of creations others have made. I get a lot of my party planning ideas and inspiration doing that as well.

There are also lots of great books on Cupcakes available to also guide you in creating that perfect cupcake.

I am also going to show you some fun items that can help in making that yummy treat.

My Halloween Cupcakes using Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves

I created the Halloween Cupcake to the right using Roundabouts Halloween Cupcake Sleeves. The Cupcake Sleeves or Cupcake Wrappers as they are also called are fun Self Adhesive Wraps that simply go right around your Decorated Cupcakes to kick them up a notch.

I have full Step by Step Tutorials on my Party Blog on how to make them. You will find instructions for the Jack O Lantern Cupcake, Witch Cupcake and also the Black Cat Cupcake.

Halloween Cupcake Pans

There are some fun Halloween Cupcake pans available. These pans will give you a fun shape to your cupcake. You can find these in a few design choices from Pumpkins, Ghosts, and Monsters.

You can also add in some fun to the inside of the cupcakes for an additional surprise using Chocolate, Cherries, Marshmallow Filling etc...

This will give it a fun ooze when the kids bite in. So watch their little faces as they take a bite and find a gooey center.


Halloween Cupcake Wrappers from Paper Orchid

Halloween Cupcake Wrappers

Having a fun wrapper on your cupcake can add to the look as well. So do not forget to consider these also. You can do a simple cupcake and just add just a fun Halloween wrapper to them. Just another thing to think about.

Around this holiday you will find lots of fun Halloween Cupcake Foils in your local grocery store and you can even get some that are a bit more elaborate. My favorites come from Paper Orchid and they are fun paper wrapper that your cupcake sits in for a completely new look - they are not to bake in. They have a laser cut design that is amazing. You can even use them as a votive holder and to place candy in as well.

Edible Halloween Sugar Shapes

Edible Sugar Shapes are a fun easy way to add to your cupcakes. Sugar Shapes are just that - sugar shapes in fun designs that can be eaten. They are made from 100% Sugar and Food Coloring. These can be used on top of your cupcakes, cookies, brownie and cakes. Did I mention the kids really love them too?

You can find these in a large variety of design choices.

Halloween Cupcake Rings

Cupcake Rings are also fun for the kids. They are toy rings in Halloween Designs that gets placed on the top of your frosted cupcake to give it that Holiday look, but the kids get a fun toy they can wear after they are done eating it. Watch as the kids pull them off and lick off all the frosting stuck to them and put them onto their fingers. I find these cupcakes rings as a bonus. Not only does it decorate your cupcake, but it is a nice party favor for the kids all in one.

These Cupcake Rings can also be used as Pinata Fillers and part of your Party Favors. You can use these to give out to your Trick or Treaters instead of handing out candy. They really are just fun seasonal themed plastic rings.
